TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Choosing a partner is no problem for John Boyega. The 30-year-old Star Wars actor told British GQ that now that he’s in his thirties, both work and his personal life are a “priority.”

“I’m 30 now. From 28, I just worked on getting peace and getting myself together,” Moving with honesty and transparency, no misleading, no lying, and being devoted to what I commit myself to.”

After becoming more serious about finding love, Boyega knows what he wants in a partner. “I only date Black,” he said. “Then it’s about chemistry, personality, goals. Is there a synergy? Can I help you? Can you help me?”

He added, “my approach is very disciplined when it comes to the types of women I speak to. They don’t want you interfering with their business.”

According to Boyega, he draws inspiration from his parents, who have been together for 35 years. “Being in the public eye, they would prefer if you had the wife and family,” he said. “It’s the ultimate PR package. But my parents have been together for 35 years.

There’s nothing that this world can do in terms of pressure to make me be inspired by anything else but my parents.”

As part of SiriusXM’s Bevelations, host Bevy Smith asked the Golden Globe winner about his preference for women who are “brown and thick.”

“Well, let’s be honest, I wouldn’t have said that at 27, 28, but now I’m like, You’ve got to speak it into existence,” Boyega explained. “Brown and thick, melanin levels past 75 percent. Thick levels. You have to be looking good.”

Before his career took off with his 2015 debut in the Star Wars series, Boyega sought dating advice from Robert Downey Jr. and Orlando Bloom. “It was time for me to sit down with someone who’s been through the extremes of Hollywood and to be given some tips as to how to stay stable,” Boyega told GQ.

He explained that the topic of women quickly came up. “As a celebrity, people advise you to choose someone who doesn’t care about your career,” Boyega said. Despite that, the British actor disagreed, telling his new mentors, “She has to care about it in order to comprehend it.”

Fans were surprised by such press reports because they know the British actor as a hero who triumphed over hardship and fought against insidious villains in Star Wars. Their belief is that he is incapable of establishing relationships with women.

“I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen. Because you see different people from different backgrounds, and different cultures, every day.

Even if you’re a racist, you have to live with that,” the Evening Standard newspaper quoted the British actor as saying. There is a perception among some viewers that John is dissatisfied with this situation since he doesn’t appear in the most successful series of the day. It was because of this issue that the actor raised the issue of black artists in popular films, according to Internet users.

In reality, a certain number of dark-skinned actors have also appeared in Game of Thrones, despite its widespread perception that mostly white actors star in the show.

One of the first to respond to John Boyega’s arguments was George Martin, the author of “A Song of Ice and Fire.” The television series Game of Thrones was based on his works. Thus, by Martin’s reckoning, the world in which the events of his works take place differs considerably from America in the 21st century, mainly because modern people have created entirely new rules of life.
